A beautiful self-explanatory painting having the artist's signature in the lower right area of the image, entitled "Earthquake". An expressionist composition with tumbling grey and black cinder blocks and debris that appear in overlapping forms that fill the space. The background is rendered in hues of umber and charcoal. Pigmentation is applied opaquely in hues of grey, umber black, white.
"The Earthquake" Collection is a series of five paintings created by one of the most celebrated Haitian contemporary artist, Philippe Dodard. The works are typical of the artist's oeuvre of Expressionist compositions that make political and social implications; hieroglyphics with hidden meanings; in this case the earthquake that devastated Haiti. The artist's use of great color intensity magnifies the emotion.
